Must Make! Modern Alphabet Tile Signage DIY

DIY Projects, Party Decor, Wedding DIY

Today’s DIY is all about making a fresh and modern spin on the good old bunting flags. We were inspired by this minimalist menu display after spotting this trend in our favorite coffee shops! We collaborated with boss stylist Marisa Nicole Events to create a monochromatic menu-like letter display in two different scenes to show just how versatile this DIY alphabet tile signage can be with our friends at Fiskars. We’re always aching for bright pops of color, and Birds of a Feather was able to capture all this botanical eye candy from Of the Flowers.

How to Throw a Seaside Inspired Table in a Pinch

DIY Projects

Fall is chock full of cozy gatherings and al fresco dinner parties — how else would you celebrate sweater weather? And with all the fun seasonal activities calling your name, the last thing you want to be doing is grunt work for these little get-togethers. So inspired by the idea of stressing less and living more, we put together a porch table with nautical lanterns from 46 & Spruce to show just how simple this task can be. This home and garden store is overflowing with terrariums, vases and lanterns that can help you whip together a party setting in a pinch, so it’s no surprise we looked to them first!

To print double sided, you will need to run each sheet of hang tags through the printer twice. Though as you print front and back, don’t feel obligated to marry polka dots with polka dots. We recommend mixing and matching these designs between individual tags and placement in the final display as well. This foolproof recipe will give your balloon ceiling the ultimate dynamic edge, and it took no time to style! What’s more, it’s a wonderful way to fill space and make an impact with little work. So if you’re looking for creative wedding details that will have jaws on the floor, head on over to Avery’s Design & Print tool to give this suspended project a go.

Lucky Star Origami Inspiration with Fred Meyer Jewelers

Fashion & Beauty

Japanese origami is all about symbolism, and one of our favorite origami creations is the Lucky Star. Creating 1 star for your loved one signifies the only one, while 9 stars signifies love for a long time. If you want to go the extra mile, 1314 stars represent a whole eternity of love! Can you imagine a more special (and meaningful) touch to a Valentine’s gift? Fred Meyer Jewelers was the real mvp and put together a step-by-step DIY to teach you how to make your own:



If every quantity of Lucky Stars has a specific purpose, shouldn’t every detail of your ring too? Understanding the different meanings of rings is key to choosing the right one for you. We’re truly enamored by Fred Meyer Jeweler’s Destiny Diamond, which is embedded across 3 collections that provide a wedding ring and personality blueprint – each in their own way!

Bracelets

Hearts_Cropped

If you have a vibrant, extroverted soul (and let’s face it, you love to be the center of attention), the Strength Collection should definitely be a contender. Featuring a strong solitaire as it’s center stone, this striking piece is the kind that people won’t stop talking about. If you’re all about the glitz + glamour, and you tend to light up every room, you’re probably a Harmony gal. We’re talking diamonds on diamonds in a symphony of sparkle. But let’s say you’re more of a traditionalist, and your story together is a dynamic one. The Journey Collection is all about adventure, signifying your past, present and future in various three-stone, anniversary and wedding bands.

Modern Handcrafted Bridal Shower Inspiration

DIY Projects, Party Decor

Today we’re sharing a modern + handcrafted bridal shower inspiration in partnership with Birch & Goldberry. The trio behind this Houston TX company offers fine handpainted gift wrap, artisanal soaps and candles, making for a one-shop for creating your bridesmaid gift kits. We took inspiration from these girl bosses and these items to dream up of a fun bridal brunch that you can recreate yourself — with how-tos below!

Shot by the talented Emily Elizabeth Photo, this sleek + modern design from DIY contributor and Event Stylists ENLY Designs drew us in right from the start. From the hand stitched placemats to the hexagonal table runner to the triangular chandelier, we’d fall right down the rabbit hole if it led to a paper-filled wonderland like this. This vignette most definitely has a wow-factor, and we can’t imagine a more perfect setting for getting together with your girls.

You may be wondering just how to present the question, and we have a solution for you. After a little bit of wining + dining, curated gift boxes are a fun and unique way to spread the love and provide these very important people with something truly memorable. Our ideal gift box would include a soy candle, abstract soap bar, heartfelt note and confetti of course! Oh, and complete with bubbly upon delivery.

The common denominator of all these amazing DIYs is Birch & Goldberry. They have a wide array of products you can incorporate into a shower like this, and as the Paper & Packaging Board reminded us last month, the crafting possibilities with paper are endless (check out this easy paper backdrop DIY if you’re looking for something more to decorate a bridal brunch). The wrap collection featured in today’s shoot is The Neutrals, though their other wrap bundles are speckled with purples, greens and even sky blues to provide a visual symphony worth talking about. These papers have a thick texture that is wonderful for fine crafts as well as gift wrapping.
